The Weslaco Museum proudly showcases artists whose works reflect the culture and spirit of our community. Emerging or established, solo or collaborative, scholastic or self-initiated, the Artists’ Gallery features a new exhibit each month that conveys a sense of home. Selfies with Frida, Tinaco by moonlight, portraits of conjunto musicians who brought their sounds from the fields to the radio – the Weslaco Museum celebrates the people and places and experiences that help to shape our community.

The Weslaco Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and archives, many of which are on regular display. However, we have such a large collection that we cannot possibly exhibit all of our items at once. Artifacts - objects - are kept in our storage room, cataloged into several groups: kitchen & housewares; cameras; clothing, hats & shoes; military & civic duty; geology; as well as several others. Archives - papers and documents - are kept in our records room. Artifacts and archives are made available for research to those individuals who submit a formal request.
